Description

1858 Judd-221 Quarter Pattern, PR67+
Distinctive Paquet Reverse Design
The Finest Specimen Certified

1858 P25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-221, Pollock-264, High R.7, PR67+ NGC. CAC.
Design.
The obverse features the regular Seated Liberty design created years earlier by Christian Gobrecht. The reverse exhibits the distinctive Anthony Paquet design with an oddly formed eagle holding an olive branch and three long, slender arrows. The denomination is spelled in full as QUARTER DOLLAR and the statutory legend appears above the eagle, both are in Paquet's unusual lettering style. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

Commentary. A native of Hamburg, Germany, Anthony Paquet (1814-1882), came to America in 1848. He furnished letter punches to the Mint in the second half of the next decade. Dies bearing his letter punches, including this 1858 quarter dollar pattern, are attributed as his engraving work.

NGC and PCGS have certified seven examples of Judd-221 with an average grade of PR64.6. The Eric P. Newman example is the finest of the seven, and the only one with a Plus designation.

Physical Description. A stunning Superb Gem proof, this Paquet quarter exhibits cobalt-blue and pale green toning with light champagne near the borders. The strike is exquisite and the eye appeal is first-rate.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (NGC ID# 29C2, PCGS# 11914)
